Attractive stone house with 3/4 acre garden, a garage and pond in secluded position in the Orne area of Normandy. The house is approximately 30 years old and benefits from double glazed windows, a downstairs bedroom and shower room and three first floor bedrooms.
What makes this property different is not only what it consists of but it’s positioning in the Normandy landscape. The peace and tranquillity of the area makes it an ideal setting to ‘get away from it all’ and is a perfect place for quiet reflection.
The property is well served by local shops and restaurants at Putange-Pont-Ecrépin just 3km away. Within a few minutes' drive is Falaise and Clécy in the heart of the area known as Swiss Normandy. The D-Day landing beaches are within an hour's drive.

ABOUT THE AREA AND ACCESS
This French property is set at the southern end of Swiss Normandy; an area of outstanding natural beauty and a popular tourist destination. The nearest town is Falaise, which is the ancestral home of William the Conqueror. It is near a large lake through which flows the River Orne. The lake is used, amongst other things, for water-skiing, canoeing and fishing and there is a choice of two restaurants on the lakeside.
Travel from the port of Caen (Ouistreham) to the property is a mere 55 minutes. Paris is only 2 hours to the east and the lovely old town of Bayeux and the Normandy beaches are just an hour to the north. It is also en route south (A88) for Le Mans, Tours and the South of France, with Brittany just a couple of hours away to the west.
